About Candid Gold Powder 100gm

Candid Gold Powder 100gm is a combination medication used to treat fungal skin infections like athlete’s foot, ringworm, jock itch and infections caused due to excessive sweating. Besides this, it also treats a fungal infection caused by yeast known as Candida. Fungal infection is a skin disease in which a fungus attacks the tissue and cause infection. Fungal infections may be contagious (spread from one person to another).

Candid Gold Powder 100gm is a combination of two drugs: Clotrimazole (antifungal) and Allantoin (moisturizer). The fungal cell membranes are essential for their survival as they prevent unwanted substances into the cells and stop the leakage of cell contents. Clotrimazole belongs to the class of antifungals that works by damaging the fungal cell membranes and kills fungi. Allantoin is a moisturizing agent that works forming an oily layer on the top of skin that traps in the water. Thereby moisturizes the outermost layer of skin and makes it smoother and softer. Also, it breaks down a protein known as keratin (that forms part of skin structure) and removes dead skin cells and softens skin.

Candid Gold Powder 100gm is only for external use. You are advised to use Candid Gold Powder 100gm for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you based on your medical condition. Some people may experience itching, pain, redness, irritation, burning or stinging sensation.
